About The Book
In today’s turbo-charged world, in which the pace of life is accelerating at a dizzying pace, very little time is spent reflecting upon the real purpose of man's existence. Instead, the main goals of life are the fulfillment of carnal desires and the accumulation of material goods of no real substance for a trifling period of time, at the expense of following Divine guidance. The overwhelming prevalence of greed and vice is what destroyed the nations before and is an ominous sign that the Last Hour is drawing near.
Despite living longer, people spend less and less time attending to their spiritual needs, choosing instead to focus their attention on the myriad distractions made possible by fast-evolving technology. Beguiled by the false allure of this world the souls become diseased and ultimately die. The dead soul is heedless of its real purpose and oblivious of the inevitable meeting with its Maker; our great King Allah, the Most High.
Those who wish to lead a spiritual life are in the minority. Thus it is incumbent for the seekers of Allah’s Pleasure to follow the correct path, lest their efforts are rendered worthless. This book will Insha’Allah aid the noble reader to awaken one’s soul to its true purpose and follow the straight path of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw), the best man to walk this earth, the finest of all examples and the most beloved to Allah – whose spirituality, character, morals and ethics are unquestionable.
This work by Shaikhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah is of great importance.
About The Author
Shaykhul-Islam Taqi ud-Din Abu'l-Abbas Ahmad Ibn al-Halim ibn Abd al-Salam Ibn Taymiyyah al-Hanbali was born in , 661 AH (1263 AC) in Haran, which is now in Eastern Turkey, near the border of northern Iraq.
His family had long been renowned for its learning , among his teachers, was Shams ud-Din Al-Maqdisi, first Hanbali Chief Justice of Syria following the reform of the judiciary by Baibars. The number of Ibn Taimiyah's teachers exceeds two hundred. Ibn Taimiyah was barely seventeen, when Qadi Al-Maqdisi authorized him to issue Fatwa (legal verdict).
Qadi remembered with pride that it was he who had first permitted an intelligent and learned man like Ibn Taymiyyah to give Fatwa. At the same age, he started delivering lectures. When he was thirty, he was offered the office of Chief Justice, but refused, as he could not persuade himself to follow the limitations imposed by the authorities.
Imam Ibn Taimiyah's education was essentially that of a Hanbali theologian and jurisconsult. But to his knowledge of early and classical Hanbalism, he added not only that of the other schools of jurisprudence but also that of other literature.
He had an extensive knowledge of Qur'an, Sunnah, Greek philosophy, Islamic history, and religious books of others, as is evident from the variety of the books he wrote.
